What is colour melt hair we hear you ask! Colour melt hair colour is also known as root stretch, root drag and colour bleeding. It is one of the most popular colour choices in our Woking hair salon and can be personalised to suit your hair cut perfectly.

Colour melting is a modern technique used by your stylist to create a soft graduation of colour normally with 3 or more similar colours being overlapped from the roots to the tips to give a seamless flow of colour. Your root colour is expertly dragged or smudged into another similar colour so the blend looks natural and subtle. The variation and blend of colour mean regrowth lines are softer and less noticeable as the colour fades and grows out.

Natural hair colours of brown, blonde and red lend themselves well to this colouring technique as it offers a low maintenance look. Brighter, fashion shades that are very different to your natural root colour will require more regular top-ups. 



Foilayage is an alternative to traditional foil highlights. These flattering, fine highlights are weaved or hand painted directly onto the hair to achieve a multi dimensional colour. Foilayage highlights are normally combined with a classic balayage to achieve a brighter, fresh look. Often placed around the front hairline to frame the face and define your features this must have colour is cool, stylish and very much on trend.

Your root colour isn't coloured meaning a more natural look. better still, this colour looks just as fantastic grown out as it does freshly done in the salon. Still unsure? Read here to see why we have gained a reputation as being the best hair colour specialists in Woking



Nothing shouts on-trend hair colour like a beautiful, glossy balayage. This hair colour trend is going nowhere! Talk to us about balayage face-framing highlights, balayage for red heads and balayage looks for brunettes. 

There are a number of techniques and methods which your colourist can use to deliver your dream balayage colour, all offering a slightly different result. One of the main reasons balayage has taken the world by storm and remains a top colour choice is that it allows your stylist to select the exact placement of colour and pieces of hair they want to highlight. This is achieved by hand painting the colour directly onto the hair using small, thin brush strokes to produce a bespoke colour to suit the individual.

This new colour trend also goes by the name of face frame colour, and money piece highlights, it works to add dimension and interest to your hair whilst brightening your look for a fresh and fashionable hairstyle. Money piece colour works on all hairstyles, we can even add money piece highlights that work with short fringes and grown out bangs.

The highlights are normally a lighter, brighter blonde colour or a bright fashion shade to give a highly contrasting look. You can also have money piece with balayage, caramel-hued money piece highlights, or choose to pair your money piece with a darker shade for a dramatic colour result.
